Coastal sediments '99: proceedings of the 4th International Symposium on Coastal Engineering and Science of Coastal Sediment Processes : confrence theme : scales of coastal sediment motion and geomorphic change, Hauppauge, Long Island, New York, June 21-23, 1999, Volume 2
American Society of Civil Engineers, 1999 - Science - 2620 pages
Three-volume set of the proceedings of the June 1999 technical specialty conference devoted to the physical aspects of sediment processes in the coastal and inlet environment. Following a keynote address, 180 papers are divided approximately equally to discuss fundamentals, processes and systems, responses and macro-scale, and applications. Topics in Volume I include micro-scale processes, sheet flow, suspended sediments, swash and shore processes, cross-shore transport, depth of closure, inlets and river mouths, sediment budget, and equilibrium platforms. Volume II covers shingle beaches; longshore, cross-shore, and cliff processes; longshore and transverse bars; Aeolian transport; geomorphologic and regional framework; cross-bar response; inlet morphology; Long Island, NY; and the Pacific Northwest. Volume III addresses spits and nesses, storm impacts, mud beds, shore protection, detached breakwaters and groins, beach fill, morphodynamic modeling, inlet engineering, navigation channels, remote sensing, dredged material fate, and storm erosion.
